As to what do they fish for? Clam Lake is a shallow lake with a large concentration of panfish...lots of mediocre northerns, bass and walleyes.

The panfish can be very nice; especially the crappies. It is a real fisherie, but in the late spring and early summer it weeds up bad!

I was there today and had a riot. Got there about 2:00 p.m and watched with my binoc's for about 15 minutes...not much action so I snoozed. A friend of mine has been going there and said about 3:30 they have been turning on. I awakened and saw a guy stuck with his pickup...not bad...and looked at him with binocs. It was my friend. He had a brown truck which I was looking or and couldnt see. The reason was of the salt...it looked white. I reognized him and he came back over and hooked on to his Frabill. He said he had been fishing about 100 yards from me for two hours catching nothing, but pointed over to where he got stuck and said he "found em there
! I had 25 nice gills so fast it would make your head swim. In an hour it was non-stop action. Threw lots of decent gill back to leave with 25. It was simply fun...7 feet of water and they fought. Caught one of those big crappies....I mean there are crappies in there that hold up to Red Lake...I know cuz I also fish Red Lake.

Anyway...if you fish the tourney...have fun. I personally dont fish tournaments ...I hate crowds.

the contest is from 9am to 3pm. it sounds like a high of 10 degrees - so dress warm. it'll be on the north side of hwy 70, across from big mikes. they have a ton of prizes, like tv's, hotel stays, mtn. bike, etc. the lake has panfish, pike, walleye and bass. the river runs between the two lakes (it runs under the hwy 70 bridge) and runs along the west side of the lake, so don't drive over there. there's a decent size village of houses out there now. the dnr HSOforum has the lake map. there's probably close to 36" of ice now, so plan accordingly! its nothing fancy or pro-angler bound - just a local fishing contest.

    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
